With Easter less than a week away, it’s time to start planning! Hopefully you’ve got your menu all figured out because today I want to share 3 easy ways to create a beautiful Easter table. After all, the table presentation is the first thing that gets everyone excited about the delicious holiday meal! What I love about designing my table is the challenge of using items around my house (or even making something). It’s definitely more creatively satisfying than just buying something ready-made.
1. LAYER COLORFUL LINENS
Start your table design by layering colorful linens. Table linens always make the occasion seem extra special, and bright pretty colors symbolize Easter. Pick a base color and find something that contrasts with it. In my table, I use three different fabrics and patterns. For the foundation, I used a white Battenburg lace tablecloth and layered a smaller pale blue linen tablecloth over it. The napkins are made from a vintage piece of floral fabric that I found in my fabric collection. If you can’t sew but want to make your own, use a pair of pinking shears to “finish” the edge of the napkins.
2. USE A PRETTY CENTERPIECE
After deciding on your table linens, think about your centerpiece next. It can be anything you want, but make sure it goes well with your layered linens. For my Easter table centerpiece, I chose a bright pink potted Azalea plant and put it in a soup tureen. I chose a potted plant for two reasons. I loved the eye-catching color and thought it would make a simple but bold centerpiece. Then after Easter dinner, I can plant it in the yard and enjoy it for the rest of the season.
3. CREATE UNIQUE PLACE SETTINGS
The place setting is where you can really use your creativity and make everyone’s setting a little different! Make a unique place card holder or something special with your guests’ names on it. For my table, I used little Easter stitcheries that my Mom made for me over the years. They make the perfect finishing touch to the place setting. Besides each place setting is a glass egg holder with painted Easter eggs. They normally hang on my Easter tree, but it’s fun to find a new use for them. I’m sure you can find things around your house to make a beautiful Easter table as well.
I’d love to see what you do!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
